Paper Abstract

We will present results for new object spectrum phasor reconstruction methods in speckle imaging. Each phasor reconstruction algorithm results from minimizing a very naturally defined weighted-least-squares error function. Once we pick a phasor-based error function, the remaining steps in our algorithms are developed by setting the error function variation, with respect to each phasor element, to zero. The resulting coupled nonlinear equations for the minimum error phasor array are then solved iteratively, locating the error function minimum. In these applications, we will specifically compare and contrast three implementations: 1) Knox-Thompson; 2) bispectrum, using two unit-shift bispectrum planes; 3) bispectrum, using four bispectrum planes. Although we develop and minimize error functions for three specific singleaperture speckle methods, the approach readily generalizes to other cases.
